The model "Odessa" is originally of a living woman in her late 20s appropriated from a mourning photograph taken in 1918. Her form is 17.5 inches tall and is composed of muslin fabric and stuffed with raw upholstery cotton. Painted, drawn, and digitally modified details are sealed with a heavy bodied acrylic gel medium which gives her form a leathery texture. Odessa's hair is made from gathered, knotted and cut strands of thread, weaved in two variations of black(a warm, brown-black and a neutral, cool black).The hair has a soft, inviting texture with a nice weight to it. Her body is toned with subtle hints of beige, lavender and slate to complete the classic tonal black and white, dreamy quality to her image. She wears an image of a blooming dahlia coasting on water with strings of matte black beads cascading down her waist. Her skirt is made from a silky navy blue fabric with black chiffon overlaid on top that has been deliberately frayed and stressed,revealing blue fabric in places. With her relaxed palms and her bare feet gracing the ground,she appears weightless.Her lips give into a half smile as she surrenders to a meditative trance as past grief is transformed by memories of a loving presence.

Odessa is signed and dated by artist
